Thanks for the links to the stormwater maps. That is very helpful.

Since we want a bit of property we are probably not going to find what we want in the Ft. Collins city limits. Right now we live in a 500 year floodplain and was not informed of that when we bought the place and didn't really understand what that meant... at first. I am learning a bit at a time.

We have lived in both Iowa and Fort Collins, and there both in town and up near Red Feather Lakes. I can say without a doubt that you should enjoy Fort Collins far more than Iowa. We were in Ames and I remember one winter in particular when the snow was so deep for so long and just kept coming that driving in the downtown area was dangerous. You were pretty much in snow canyons and had to inch out at intersections and I was always afraid of collisions. Plus it just felt so much colder, down into my bones. Never felt that way in the Fort, as is it affectionately called. PLUS PLUS PLUS if gray skies get you down just look at the sunshine graph for both places in this website. Simply no comparison.

Colorado weather in general is the best. Yeah, it can get brutally cold, but not for long.

The forecast for the holiday week:

Thur 61
Fri 65

I'm going for a bike ride!

Happy Thanksgiving.
